Glitches to be sorted out


ATHLETICS Ireland has promised to "thoroughly investigate" the starting problems that marred Athlone's major indoor international midweek and correct them in time for this weekend's GloHealth National Indoor Championships.

Both of the 60m finals had to be re-run because of starting 'failures' - when the gun fails to trigger the timer and photo-finish. That happened a third time when the men's final was first re-run so it needed three attempts to be completed and the visiting elite women chose not to even take part in their re-run.
